Jessica Levin, Director, Acquisitions commented, “Saratoga Downs presents an opportunity to invest in a Class A apartment and townhome community in the supply constrained Napa market. We believe the appealing unit mix featuring 54 larger recently constructed townhome units combined with the neighborhood’s strong demographic profile, nearby retail amenities and employment centers makes Saratoga Downs a great long term investment for our investors.”

Intercontinental acquired the property in a joint venture with Seattle-based Security Properties.  According to Mark Hoyt, Senior Director of Investments at Security Properties, several factors prompted the pursuit of this asset.

“The North Bay has been a target market for several years as cap rates are higher and supply is restricted compared to adjacent submarkets.  It is extremely difficult to build new product in Napa evidenced by the fact only two market rate apartment properties have been delivered in the past decade with two more projected to be delivered in the next decade.  The quality of the property is excellent and we are proud to include it in our portfolio.”
